What Is an Opposition Proceeding?
An opposition procedure is a tool that companies can use when their trademark, brand, logo, or patent, typically utility patents, is under attack. If another brand or competitor applies to use a similar mark, the company can file an opposition to deny the application.

However, it can also file a complaint if the mark is used in a different industry – as long as the company can prove that it would lose money because of the competing mark.
The opposition procedure starts after the trademark application has been reviewed. It lasts for 30 days and provides a window for anyone to oppose the approval of a trademark.
